On Wednesday, the Cultural Affairs Commission, CAC, teamed up with 7000 in Solidarity to create a unique variation of their weekly creative lounge, “The Word.” The night was called “Silence and Sexual Violence,” and anyone who wanted to speak about their assault, the assault of someone they know, or speak in broad terms about oppression was invited to do so.
The room was established as a “safe space,” a space free of homophobia, sexism, racism, and any other kind of discriminating “ism.”
7000 in Solidarity’s Consent Week began on campus yesterday in Bruin Plaza with an event addressing sexual violence, followed by an evening discussion of gender representation, intersectionality, and the media in Young Hall.
7000 in Solidarity: A Campaign Against Sexual Assault is proud to present Consent Week! This week is dedicated to education on sexual and gender-based violence, as well as expression by survivors/victims.
